We’re scheduled to start discussion of Carolyn Steedman’s Dust just one week from today. I admit to being a bit of a slacker so I just started reading it this weekend but so far I am finding it (as described on the back of my edition) “witty, engaging, and challenging.”
One thing that I found useful the last time I hosted a online reading group like this was having people post a little about themselves before we started. It creates more of a sense of community I think and also it can be helpful to know a bit more about someone’s perspective when they are commenting on the book. So, if you’d like, post a short comment below telling us about your background in archives. This is not mandatory, of course. Anyone is welcome to participate in the conversation at any time.
